Program Details

Many university programs today are modelled on the traditional method of teaching and learning where an authoritative person lectures to a classroom of students. However, graduates aren’t always able to translate their learning in the classroom into being able to solve real-life problems. The UniWater program stresses the application side of learning by bringing real problems into the classroom and providing students with the opportunity to practice problem-solving.
